Lush Mr Punch Soap is a newly launched, limited edition Christmas Soap. He’s supposed to be fruity with an injection of lime oil, juniper berries, gin, and blackcurrant….
Anytime Lush puts lime into a soap I jump on the bandwagon and ride away into the happy sunset…! They always do lime right. I heard blackcurrant and instantly visions of The Comforter danced through my head. Lime and blackcurrant?
This could be heaven.
Or this could be hell.
Lush calls it a summery-y fruity punch left out in the freezing weather. Sounds terribly tempting and it smells it too! I got a hearty chunk of Mr Punch with my recent Lush UK order. I was very excited on first sniff! It is indeed fruity but you can’t pick any one note from it although there is a strong layer of blackcurrant which is absolutely delightful!
I liked it, I really liked it.
Took it to the shower with me and proceeded to, well, not like it.
Something goes oddly wrong with Mr Punch when he hits water. He loses his fruity scent and veers towards a posher french milled soap scent. It’s the oddest thing….! He turns into this softer floral that I wasn’t particularly keen on and can only be compared to a fancy soap of some sort (ya know, those ones you buy for your bathroom to display but never actually use?!).
Mr Punch you and I must part ways….but it sure was a nice run while it lasted.
